A Literary Comedy podcast where we try to read those books that look good on your shelf…and laugh a lot along the way!

Episode 17- Don’t Be a Bullying Seaman

October 13th, 2020

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

And a belated Happy Birthday to Ken, who turned 36 (if we're counting quarantine birthdays) yesterday!

This week, Heather reads an unsettling seafaring story by British author, Victorian hunk, and erstwhile bodybuilder William Hope Hodgson. "The Voice in the Night" is an eerie journey, and our hosts compensate by finally learning what the poop deck is, coming up with euphemisms for "drunk, and trademarking a new burlesque entertainment style.

If you've already enjoyed this week's "True Crimes and a Lie", you can get to the story by jumping to the 13:27 mark.

"The Voice in the Night" has been adapted and reprinted many times, but was first published in the November 1907 edition of Blue Book Magazine.

So sit back, light a fire (or even a candle), grab a drink, and enjoy.
